What’s your number 1 Illamasqua product and why? 

My number 1 Illamasqua product! That’s a hard one, I have so many but if I had to choose it would have to be Skin Base Foundation because it’s the best foundation I have ever tried, it gives my skin a beautiful dewy coverage. Every time I do a video or wear it out people always ask me what I have on my skin. I feel with this I can just put it on quickly with some concealer to give me that real kick! Its amazing for that perfectly beat face!

If you could create a look with purely Illamasqua products what would you choose?

If I could create a look with purely Illamasqua products I would use your Precision Gel Liner to help create half skeleton/half glamorous human. I would use your Skin Base Foundation for a flawless base, with a darker shade to really get that super contoured Naomi Campbell cheekbone effect HA! Then use the highlighter, Gleam for a golden highlighted look on the other side plus add your beautiful winged out lashes in Grandeur for a beautiful winged out look on the other side. To finish it off with some Skin Base Lift concealer to highlight under my eyes. Perfect for Halloween for a 2 faced look LOL.

Make-up aside, what do you do to take care of hair, skin and body?

My hair I am always changing it but I loved putting serums and oils in my hair like Moroccan oil so its never dry or brittle. My skin is so important to me! We only have one skin in our lifetime! I always take care of my skin I always double cleanse after taking off my makeup and exfoliate twice a week then use a face mask twice a week also because sometimes the tubes and just pollution can really damage your skin. Its getting so cold I love slapping on a thick but lightweight moisturizer so my skin is all dewy and hydrated. My body is my temple I do Yoga twice a week and I go gym 4 days a week so I try to be healthy because I’m trying to get the perfect body so this means eating 5 meals a day which is insane!

If you could create a new Illamasqua product what would it be and why? Don’t forget to name it!

If I could create an Illamasqua product It would be a beautiful Duo highlighting Pen one side is a highlighting concealer which gives a brighter under eye effect and the other side would be a liquid contour colour which you could put under your cheekbones then it would dry to a matte finish. This would be amazing!!! *screams* I would called it Duo Intensity Sculpture


If you could pick 5 Illamasqua products to use over and over again what would they be?

Skin Base Foundation

Matte Veil

Supernatural Highlighter

Rich Liquid Foundation

Glamore Lipstick in Buff

We love your videos Gary, how do you decide on topics and what inspires you?

I’m always looking at new videos online or always searching hashtags on Instagram looking at fashion or makeup. I always love researching new products to talk about or new fashion launches I can be involved in. Everybody inspires me, The world is like a walking Wikipedia & Vogue magazine mixed together. I just take little bits of everybody and make it my own to talk about 🙂

Not only is your face flawless but your style is enviable! What style make up and fashion will you be rocking in the next coming months?

Aw Thank you! Well at the moment I am loving super flawless highlighted skin. I always make sure my T-zone is super matte with the help of your Matte Veil but then the rest of my face is super dewy and highlighted. For winter my makeup will be simple I love neutral colours on my eyes browns, taupe’s just one colour to make them stand out. The only thing my cheeks always have to be contoured there has t to be definition if my makeup is going to be simple. With my style I will be rocking everything oversized coats, shirts, jumpers. I am loving my new camel coat I got off eBay for £40 its huge oversized and is just warm and snuggly. It’s all about keeping warm but looking totally cute.
